#BookTour “Rotten Peaches” by Lisa de Nikolits

Rotten Peaches by Lisa de Nikolits Tour banner~~~

Synopsis:

Rotten Peaches by Lisa de Nikolits Rotten Peaches is a gripping epic filled with disturbing and unforgettable insights into the human condition. Love, lust, race and greed. How far will you go? Two women. Two men. One happy ending. It takes place in Canada, the U.S. and South Africa. Nature or nurture. South Africa, racism and old prejudices — these are hardly old topics but what happens when biological half-siblings meet with insidious intentions? Can their moral corruption be blamed on genetics — were they born rotten to begin with? And what happens when they meet up with more of their ilk? What further havoc can be wreaked, with devastating familial consequences? “Wow. Just wow. Lisa de Nikolits’ Rotten Peaches blew me away. A dark, compulsive, and addictive story in which the characters’ secrets and needs conflict with each other and fold back in on themselves in an ever-tightening noose, Rotten Peaches will keep readers gripped until the very last page. Highly recommended!” —Karen Dionne, internationally bestselling author of The Marsh King’s Daughter

Rotten Peaches Trailer:

Read an excerpt:

I am not a killer. I just fell in love with the wrong man. I went too far this time, and there’s no going back. There’s no going anywhere, period. I nearly stayed afloat, but my luck ran out. Luck, that mystical mythical glue that holds the shards of despair together and makes life navigable. But fragmented despair, that’s what sinks you. It’s the middle of the day and the ghost of a cat walks across my bed. I am hidden in the downy softness of bleach-laundered sheets, sheets ironed with starch and cleansed of their filthy sins by scalding Catholic water. The bed is high and wide and the pillows are like clouds ripped from a summer’s sky. I bury my head in cotton balls, puffy meringues and whipped cream, and try to ignore the ghost of the cat that is walking the length of my back. The cat settles at my feet but it gets up again and pads along my legs. When it first started its prowl, I sat up and reached for it but, like all ghosts, it immediately vanished and waited for me to turn away before settling in a warm, heavy lump against my side. Its weight is comforting in a way, like being massaged by the hand of God, but it isn’t God. It can’t be,because God, like luck, has left the building of my life. *** Excerpt from Rotten Peaches by Lisa de Nikolits. Copyright © 2018 by Lisa de Nikolits.

#Review “Consuming Fire” by Catherine Fearns

tour banner

~~~

4/5 Stars!

When the opening scene includes spontaneous human combustion, you know you’re in for a wild ride.

And that’s exactly what Consuming Fire is.

As law enforcement and first responders (shadowed by bureaucrats) investigate first the burning of animals… and then humans, DI Darren Swift can’t ignore his gut feeling there’s something else in play and contacts former Calvinist nun, Helen Hope.

Scarred by his cultish, religious upbringing, Darren is still surprised at the peace and comfort he finds in Helen’s presence, and the willingness with which he believes in the supernatural and occult implications connected to his investigation.

Unfortunately, he can’t share his supernatural theory with his team, lest they think him insane, or with fiancé, Matt, who believes in nothing connected to religion.

Consuming Fire weaves the biblical and mythological story of Adramalech, servant of Satan, who plotted to raise himself above Satan… and God into the mysterious deaths by fire at the center of the story.

Is he real or mythology? Is he the god of fire, demanding those who serve him to sacrifice all to fire?

If he isn’t real why does someone appear to be trying to bring about his prophecy? Where are those voices on the phone coming from?

Darren’s job is hindered by his life crisis—does he want to continue in law enforcement, and crisis of conscious—is he rushing into marriage?

Helen Hope, still teaching, is re-discovering life and the things she missed the last ten years she spent behind the doors of the convent.

She also has thoughts—okay, lots of thoughts—about Mikko, but alas, our favorite death metal musician doesn’t appear in this story.

There is more character development of Darren’s team—Collette, Dave, and Baz, and maybe… just maybe, Cantor (Darren’s boss) isn’t the witchy bureaucrat she seems to be.

After finishing this read, I sat for nearly an hour thinking about all I’d read.

Wow. Just… wow. Mind blown.

Detailed and well-written, Consuming Fire may make you consider the possibilities of the supernatural and occult, regardless of which side of the theological line you fall on, but it will definitely scare the hell out of you.

But you won’t stop reading.

Don’t expect this read to end in justice with a neatly tied bow. There is frustration and sadness as someone won’t make it to book 3, but you will… in search of the reason behind the Lumina 2 fire, and the ritual Justine performs.

There has to be a logical explanation, right?

Get ready for book 3 and download this smart read today.

Enjoy!

Consuming Fire coverWhat Has Been Seen Cannot Be Unseen…

Liverpool is in the grip of an intense heatwave, and strange things are happening.

A woman dies in an apparent case of Spontaneous Human Combustion; a truck explodes on the dock road; the charred corpses of pets litter the city; forest fires ravage the pinewoods…and there are birds everywhere, silent flocks drawing in ominously.

Detective Inspector Darren Swift thinks there are connections, and his investigation delves into the worlds of football, nightclubs and organised crime. But is he imagining things?

Dr. Helen Hope doesn’t think so. And she believes the key lies in a mysterious seventeenth-century occult book which has gone missing from Liverpool Library.

In the blistering sequel to Reprobation, DI Swift is forced to confront some inconvenient ghosts from his past, as a terrifying shadow lies over his city’s reality….

Tell-Tale by Danielle Allen

True, I’d been nervous—very, very dreadfully nervous—to have the conversation with him. I knew he was going to think I sounded crazy. I knew he was going to think I was crazy. But I’d nervously fretted about my feelings for him for years. My nerves had sharpened my senses—not destroyed or dulled them. And above all was my ability to listen.

I’d heard all the reasons why we shouldn’t be together. I know I’d given every excuse in the world, every excuse from heaven to hell as to why we couldn’t be together. But my feelings wouldn’t go away, so… how does that make me crazy?

Listen! Sanely and calmly, I’ll tell you the whole story.

#Review “Dark Paradise: A Caribbean Noir Murder Mystery (Boise Montague Book 1)” by Gene Desrochers

Dark Paradise by Gene Desrochers Banner~~~

5/5 Stars!

Boise Montague is an every-man. He’s carrying a few too many pounds, drinking too much, and is convinced Colitis is of the devil’s own making.

Losing his environmental attorney wife in a freak hit-and-run accident has caused him to flounder and descend into a downward spiral.

The police say it was an accident. He knows it was murder.

A private investigator for a law firm, Boise does his own digging, but the only thing he gets close to is being arrested for interfering in a police investigation.

To keep his sanity and his freedom, Boise does what we all do when trying to make sense of it all… he goes home, to the place of his birth.

But the  U.S. Virgin Islands have changed, and St. Thomas is nothing like the place Boise left as a twelve-year-old.

Instead of finding peace, he finds more confusion and heartbreak when he learns his best friend, Roger Black, died because of the life of crime he led.

Things make little sense for Boise. Finding out the investigation into Roger’s death was lackluster, and plagued by guilt for not keeping in touch with Roger, he begins asking questions.

This leads Boise to encounter some colorful characters, get kidnapped, get shot, and almost blown up by a grenade—and get into a parallel case where murder isn’t a big deal.

Boise partners with a reporter who has sources… and attitude.

Dana is a gutsy little thing not afraid to go where the story leads—but she also annoyed me… because she’s not afraid to go where the story leads. Reckless isn’t a good look. However, Dana is disgusted with the island’s social status quo and knows there’s more going on… and covered up below the surface. She’s determined to open a few cans of worms and skeleton-filled closets.

Her sources and moxey are good and serve her well, but Boise’s gut instincts win the day in this read.

Dark Paradise is an engaging story I highly recommend. The island flavor enhances the story and its dark, gritty tone brings to life the community behind destination vacations tourists never see. It also shows one need not look any further than the ugliness of human flaws and frailties to find motive.

The ending is solid… and open for another visit from Boise. Sooner than later, I hope.

Enjoy!

Synopsis:

Dark Paradise by Gene Desrochers

Boise Montague’s life in Los Angeles has fallen apart. After his wife dies, he returns to the tiny island where he grew up. Unfortunately, coming home doesn’t bring him the peace he’s looking for. Things have changed drastically since his last visit. The island has moved on and so have the people he once knew. When Boise tries to find the one friend he thinks he can count on to be there for him, he’s confronted with another death. A murder. A murder that the police did not think important enough to investigate thoroughly. Boise wants answers. He enlists a local reporter named Dana, who has theories of her own, to help him dig deeper. With not much left to lose, a bone to pick with the justice system, and a relentless partner, Boise sets out to do what the police would not: solve the murder of Roger Black. The island of St. Thomas is a gleaming tropical paradise. Welcome to the Caribbean, where murder is as common as sunshine.
